Sometimes it’s nice to have a root through your makeup collection and rediscover old favourites. And that was exactly what I did when packing for my recent trip to Ragdale Hall.
I’m really enjoying dark, opulent looks at the minute – vampy red lips and a bold eye. I know, I know, the MUA’s say one or the other but at this time of year I find myself reaching for the both.
I love this eyeshadow quad palette I was very kindly gifted from the brand Me Me Me last year. The mix of pinky red shades and metallic golds work so well together when blended and it’s my newly discovered fave.
You can use it to create a variety of eye looks – I’m loving using the berry shades across the lid to build up to a dramatic eye and then add a touch of bronze in the crease to add a bit of sparkle. I’m using it most weekend and I can’t wait to see their latest releases for this season.
And like I said earlier, a bold lip is a must as we edge nearer to Christmas. I love the pillar box red tone to this Illamasqua lippie.
I’m undecided on this MUA brow product. I like the colour and it’s so easy to use as it has a wand so you literally add colour to your brows in a one sweep, but I don’t know if I’m finding it too heavy? What blonde/light brown brow products do you use? I’d love to know!
